New SWFUK Facebook Group

Post by edd_jedi »

Just to let you all know, I have finally got around to creating a SWFUK Facebook group. It's so busy on there vintage wise these days, it would be crazy to turn a blind eye to it. I'm not trying to move people from here to Facebook, personally I think the two platforms complement each other, and both have their pros and cons.

Here's the link if you would like to join:

Good idea, Edd, although I must admit a little bit of me has just died :lol:

I do hope it doesn't detract from here. Hopefully, it'll do the exact opposite and drive more traffic this way. Not that it needs it of late; the amount of new members is heartening.

I'm in a #3, it seems. Thanks for the add! Do I get a special badge?

Yes that's the plan, hopefully it will drum up a bit of business for the forum and as above I don't think Facebook will ever replace forums anyway due to the throw-away nature of the content.

It's useless to resist.

I've joined but must admit I go on here to get away from Facebook. Makes sense though I guess. Kids today eh.

Sent you a join request.

I got thrown out of my first group yesterday. Seems the loose variant group doesn't have a sense of humour. I must spend too much time on swfuk.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo
And any other funky stickers or speeder bike oddities.

Can't say I love this idea, because if a lot of the chat and banter ends up on the facebook page instead of on the forum, it would be a major downer!

but Meh, lets see...

I used my Jeremy Beadle joke and applied it to the photo of the boba fett with the short shot hand.

The original went: Jeremy Beadle has a small dick, but then on the other hand, it's massive.

I thought I was being funny. Within 10 seconds the comment was gone and I was out. Perhaps something got lost in translation.
